Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge 'reindeer'

Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge

Hello everyone, and a very warm welcome to Bine,  from Germany and Traci, all the way from sunny California, who are joining us as new followers this week. Isn't it great how crafting and blogging brings us together from all corners?

Today is the day for a new challenge over at Holly Jolly Christmas and this time the theme is 'reindeer'. This challenge is sponsored by Meljens Designs and I used one of their cute images called 'Dancer' for my card.

I'm sure this reindeer thinks she is an English Morris Dancer with the bells and what looks like clogs instead of hooves! In fact, is that accordion I can hear? I stamped a snowflake background and cut a little hill which I covered with glitter so they could dance in the snow. I cut out and coloured the right hand reindeer first, but I couldn't  leave her dancing all by herself like Dancer no mates, so I flipped and enlarged the image slightly to give her a dancing partner, and here they are, bowing to each other before the fun begins. A little matting and some glitter on the snowflakes finished it off. The sentiment was created on my computer.

I'd like to enter this into the Christmas Challenge 'the most wonderful time of the year',

My Perfect Life, festive 48, and Crafty Hazelnuts challenge to use a sentiment on the card.

Thanks for stopping by, and why not pop over to HJCC to see what my teamies have created.
